lagarto endémico del desierto de Chile
"Distribution of Liolaemus torresi (Squamata: Liolaemidae), lizard endemic to the Chilean desert
To arrive at this result, to identify this species as Liolaemus torresi, to be able to expand its range of distribution, to say with certainty that our coastal mountain range dwells and to add it to the patrimony of the commune of Antofagasta was not an easy step.
The first step was to create the activity that originated their encounter and all this based on assumptions - We never went so far in the coastal mountain range as on this occasion - we were sure that something new we could find and it was. Therefore, we must thank the attendees and the same way. Thank those who gave this species. Rodrigo Castillo T and Erika Maulén V. That eye prepared for years in the routes to capture the slightest movement. They must know that it is not easy to explore the desert. Everything is mimicked and the best defense of many species is to remain immobile. That is why it is meritorious and worthy of thanks.
From there comes that complex stage, that wandering through information, until the images come to the right hands and you get what you want. The identification. Therefore, the merits and thanks to Messrs. Jaime Troncoso-Palacios and Diego Demangel Miranda. Receive our fraternal greetings and we remain at your disposal"
